Already familiar

Sunnies: Vince Camuto (option) | Necklace: Express (option) | Bag: Marc by Marc Jacobs (other colors here, option) | Top: Express (option, option) | Bracelet: Express | Skirt: Express  (in black here) | Booties: Report (option, option)

So, I recapped my meeting with Gina yesterday, if you missed it! I figured I would split the day up into two posts - what I bought and what I wore. What does one wear to meet someone for the first time that you already know? Someone that you don't have to worry about impressing, but couldn't impress even if you *did* want to because they know your wardrobe more than you know it yourself?

Well, you wear pieces from the store that brought you two together in the first place, of course - Express.

I already have this skirt in black thanks to Rachelle (seen here), and decided I also needed it in grey stat. Lucky for me, this arrived the day I was packing for the trip, so I threw it in the suitcase and crossed by fingers that this Barcelona cami would pair well with it. Lo and behold, it did. Add some of my favorite bling and I was good to go!

I was really hoping this skirt would be in store because I've been trying to convince Gina that she needs it also, but alas, it was nowhere to be found. Guess that means we just need to go shopping together again to try and find it! :) Yes, I'm still a bit on cloud 9 from our meeting. Sigh.

  1. As soon as I saw that skirt I knew it was a must! and the thing is you don't find skirts like this one everywhere. So happy I have both colors as well, cannot wait to wear the black. Perfect styling!

    1. Yep, definitely such a unique and perfect find! It's so comfortable, but it *looks* like it's a lot of effort, you know? I just love it. Can't wait to style it for winter!

  5. It was so exciting to see what you would pick to wear to meet me and you did not disappoint! I was glad you wore some favorite pieces from our favorite place! I'm definitely bummed I didn't get to try the skirt on. If there's another good sale I'll just think about ordering it for trial purposes. :)

    1. I don't know why i want to see this on you so bad! It's just a really great piece, and I guess i'm trying to return the favor from the boucle mini! I almost wore the camo and dots outfit instead of this one, but really wanted to wear this skirt for the first time with you!

  7. The skirt looks very chic! It looks like it could be from a T by Alexander Wang collection. I guess I need to make a trip to express soon ;)
